that helping us getting jobs. >> let me judge -- ask you about libya. are you surprised that mitt romney hasn't made this a front burner issue on the campaign trail? >> i think he's afraid to. because the national media hasn't made an issue of it. and he's not reaching out in the big blue sky and come up with something in the last minute. i am not hur it is the best one. i think it is a huge story and the most important story out there. and if the president and/or his administration or somebody, we don't know who yet. we know somebody lied to us and a massive cover up and the story keeps change we have four dead americans that. is a big story and demands answers. and no one can get consistent answers. and if the national media other than fox news which has done a good job of covering it. particularly katherine and jennifer. other media outlets are not pushing it. i think mitt romney is the reluctant to go out on the point for it. >> i know you have a big show and urge viewers to tune in tonight. thank you for joining us today. >> thank you, uma. in this razor thin election voters fraud could
. and the job jobs go look. american people and you are seeing it reflecting in the polls and mitt romney's momentum. they reyect they understand presidents have turned around grim economic situations in one term. namely ronald reagan. he limited government and lowered taxes and regulatory reform and the opposite thingings of what barack obama has done . he had a recovery whenwhere we gained 800,000 jobs a month and we had a economic growth rate of 5-9 percent. and that's not what is happening now . politicings is a perception game, among the american people things are not getting better they are stag instant. >> and talk about the final push in the last few days. the president plans ohio, wisconsin and iowa and colorado and new hampshire and go back to wisconsin on monday. what does this say about the president's strategy at this point juan? >> this election. we talk about the horse race and the numbers being close. it comes down to the swing states and specific to ohio and right now fyou look at swing states with the exception of north carolina, in most of the swing states. president ob
mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> i'm mitt romney, and i approve this mention. >> cenk: of course you did you're a goddamn liar, and you approve nonsense like that all the time. how many jeeps are produced in china--none. how muchhow many in the u.s.? half a million. and lee iaccoa supporting you a filthy rich guy supporting romney, i didn't see that coming. how about jeep itself. quote, let's set the record straight: jeep has no intention of shifting production of its jeep models out of north america to china. if that's not clear enough, we'll bring in congressman steve cohen from tennessee. he has been following this race, as we all have. i know sometimes there is a coloring of the lines and you don't always get the exact truth in the different sides of the election but this seems to be record breaking to me. am i seeing that wrong or are they taking more chances with the truth here? >> i don't know they've even approached truthiness. i've had it in my campaign with my republican opponent, they change position faster than a kama sutra does. i heard the ad there. it co
, and when you actually add the economic data we saw on friday from the jobs report, mitt romney's task is a little bit harder because he is actually saying, look, this has been a rough last four years, and it's time to actually good days are ahead, but the argument when you actually look at all the statistics that are out there, things are moving in the right direction as far as things are much better than they were four years ago, and even if mitt romney ends up winning the presidency on tuesday, he will end up inheriting a much better economy than president obama did four years ago. >> that's interesting, eugene. several months ago there was an article that said insiders in the obama team were mortified at the thought that if governor romney wins the white house, that he would get credit for the recovery put in place by actions and decisions made by them. >> absolutely. that's exactly what would happen. and there is nothing anybody can do about it. the sitting president is going to get credit for the good and the bad. look, governor romney promises to add 12 million jobs in his first
of new jobs we really need but we're going in the right direction. governor romney will almost certainly respond we're not growing fast enough. we could do a whole lot better without going into all this debt. bill: stuart, thank you. the closing argument for governor romney happens this afternoon. we'll show you which state ry interestinghat in. to many. thank you, stuart. see you 9:20 on fbn. you got it. martha. martha: let's get another look at this jobs picture. there is combination of 23 million americans who are either unemployed right now or what we call underemployed. more than 3.5 million of those folks have been unemployed a year or more. it taking average for 40.2 weeks for someone unemployed to find a job. that is a very long time. i don't have to tell any folks that are in that situation that is painful. here is another look at it, another statistic, african-american unemployment rate is up one point to 14.%. we're waiting to get the official white house response to this jobs number this morning. also the official response from the romney campaign. we'll get those to you as s
years of this guy. they'll go with mitt romney. mitt romney has done a good job attacking through the middle. there's a lot more enthusiasm with republican voters. i haven't totaled polls. i've looked at them. my guys are smiling, too. i think ohio is going to go romney's way and i think that it's going to be one of those things that if you have somebody like rob portman working so closely with the romney campaign leading the charge, very popular senator, i think they'll do well in ohio. >> john, you have been getting bad press, the republicans have for this new ad running in ohio. let me play a little bit of it for you. >> who will do more for the auto industry? not barack obama. obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> chrysler thought that ad was so misleading they put out a statement making the point that, in fact, they're adding 1100 jobs in detroit and any jeeps that are made in china are for the people of china. was that a mistake on their part? a lot of
right now. that's why mitt romney has laid out a plan to create 12 million american jobs making america more business-friendly and reducing this regulation. >> and yet, the numbers, the at least from chrysler, they felt so compelled about what mitt romney was saying on the campaign trail that they issued a statement to say, not only are they not moving jobs to china, in fact, the company has nuns announced plans to hire an additional 12,000 workers in detroit. that will contradict what you say are concerns about auto workers? >> i don't see it as a contradiction at all. i think it is a testament to american ingeneral new at this time that people move forward to manufacture in this country. epa and government regulators are making it more and more difficult every single day. this is what we hear from so many of our manufacturers, large and small. >> let me really quickly play for you a clip that the president -- from the president's interview with joe and mica over the weekend. >> there's no doubt that the first order of business is to get our deficits and debt under control. the good th
. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> romney: i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> bill: james what is the romney campaign's response to the fact checking? >> they haven't spoken publicly about it. they have kept it very low-key, i think they hoped that no one would really notice. there is unquestionably damage done to mitt romney because of his opposition to the auto bailout. the obama campaign is aggressively running ads around romney saying let detroit go bankrupt. >> bill: uh-huh. >> and romney knows he needs to deal with it. yesterday romney had three events, spoke about 25 minutes at each of them didn't say a word about the bailout or anything like that, and at each event any obama response was the auto bailout. and chrysler denies the claim in that ad that they are going to be sending jeep jobs to china. and portman introducing romney noted that he had supported the auto bailout when it happened and then made that whole pitch which is ultimately romney is better than you than obama. i think if it wasn't for the auto bailout romney
jobs in ohio. mitt romney on the ohio jobs, wrong then. dishonest now. host: we are talking to mark naymik, a political reporter with the cleveland "plain dealer." steve is on the democratic line. caller: my call is concerning green energy and is a question for mark. supposedly, germany, 43% of their energy comes from solar energy. i was just wondering why are people so against green energy when it could dramatically change our cause prices on so much like electricity and everything else. that is my question. guest: thanks for the question. i don't know the numbers in germany. it sounds high to me. green energy is expensive because we do not have the technology right now i think to certainly -- let's talk about wind power. it is very expensive to have the idea of wind power because you can still generate that energy much cheaper using coal. as we invest more and produce more here in ohio or elsewhere in the country, green energy costs will come down. ohio has tried to make itself a leader on the wind turbine, wind energy. there are programs in ohio that are trying to put stuff on la
energy jobs. mitt romney would cut funding for research and development. while the president has invested in education to make sure our work es have the skills they need, doubled funding for pell grants, mitt romney would cut fu funding. >> so, let me ask you another question here. actually, this is sort of related, but today, the president in his speech, was very passionate. david axelrod, you heard about this, ben? >> i saw the post on it not too long ago. >> unfortunately, i am the one as the host here, who has to read you the quote when he was talking about the president and said i'll quote, you can see in the speech he's delivering that this is coming from his loins. i had the wrong screen up there. coming from his loins and then in case you thought it was a mistake, ben, he followed up by saying i just wanted to say loins. i wanted to see if i could get loins in the story. it's funny, but it's -- too. isn't it? >> i don't think anybody was intending to be tossi ining the around today. it was a long day on the trail, but i think you could feel the energy on the stump today. thousands
is doing so were better in ohio. people are focused on the economy and jobs and mitt romney has a land that is pro growth and pro jobs and president obama doesn't. when you look at the last four years they are disappointed. we are living through the weakest economic recovery since the great depression, there are 22 million americans struggling to find works and 3.5 million more women in poverty. take home pay has gone down $4,300 per family. president obama has the glossy brochure and i have looked at that brochure and i layed this role of obama during the debate preparation and it is more of the same. you can argue we need to do more of the same but it hasn't worked and it hasn't worked by president obama's own measurement, saying unemployment would be 15 percent lower if we passed the stimulus package. he said economic growth today would be two-thirds higher than it is. so, it hasn't worked. the one thing he does have in his new proposal is to raise taxes. yes, he wants to raise taxes on a million small businesses including a lot in ohio, and that will result, according to a study by
better in ohio. people are focused on the economy and jobs, and, mitt romney has a plan that is pro-growth and pro jobs to turn this thing around and, obama doesn't and when people look at the last four years they are disappointed, they must be. look, we are living through the weakest economic recovery since the great depression. and, there are 22 million americans struggling to find work and 3.5 million more women in poverty and take home pay has gone down $4300 per family on average and it is not the right direction, we are headed in the wrong direction and you have president obama, you are right. he has a glossy brochure and i've looked at that brochure and as you know i played the role of obama during the debate preps and it is more of the same and you can argue we need to do more of the same but it hasn't worked and hasn't worked by president obama's own measurements, he said unemployment would be 50% lower, than it is, if we passed the stimulus package and, economic growth would be 2/3 higher than it is. and the one thing that is in his now parole is to raise taxes and he want
went up because more people are re-entering the job market, newly optimistic about jobs being created. >> the american auto industry is back on top. home values are on the rise. >> but mitt romney was quick to insist not enough new jobs are being created to energize the still is the candidate who knows how. >> i will have a lot of people offering advice, and i know a lot about it myself to begin with. >> virginia remains one of the most coveted prizes to win on tuesday. barack obama has two rallies here tomorrow. on monday, the final day of campaigning, mitt romney will spend his day in lynchburg and head to a rally -- at george mason university. >> thanks, rebecca. residents of maryland turned out in big numbers for their final chance to turn in an early voting ballot. the state board of elections said early voting hit a record high of nearly 300,000 this year extended by one day because of hurricane sandy. >> through election day, if you see any problems at polling places, from long lines to machine of functions, please let us know. you can let us know on twitter or send an e-mail.
in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> that is actually an official campaign ad. rana, does this argument hold water with the ohio voters, that the president was actually -- is outsourcing american jobs and didn't actually save the american auto industry? >> i'm going to guess no. in part because you know, making jeeps in china might be assembling them in china to sell to chinese middle-class consumers who are actually bringing money then back to the u.s. >> as every car company does. >> as every car company does. and that's actually an important point. and, you know, we often try to portray these countries as job stealers but they're products for u.s. markets. >> i don't think there's any doubt like the ad falls apart on the details, it does, but how big a scare word is china. it's a big scare word in places like ohio and not something that's happened in the last year, three years, five years, these are areas of the country seeing a lot of jobs, manufacturing jobs, go away and where do they think they've gone? they th
, the newscasters says romney has a fake ad about jobs being shipped to china. let's go to commercial break and you see the ad. so the ad is preemptively denounced. >> what about pennsylvania? could there be the calculation here that because of the storm, the eastern part of the state might have some voting problems, i'm just speculating this, and there might be a play here for romney in pennsylvania and as you said, the past 20 years the romney -- no republican has won it. but would there be a play there because of the storm? >> well, that's what they have to hope, i guess. because they don't have any other plays. the fact is if the president carries wisconsin, if he carries ohio, it is very, very hard -- romney would have to carrie everythi everything else. that's not going to happen. you look at virginia where the president has a marginal lead, you look at florida where he's competitive, the only state that seems gone for the president is north carolina. >> okay. what about the response to hurricane sandy? do you think that this is going to have an impact? because you've got, of course, governor
the economy growing than the jobs report this week suggested. >> let's turn to a mitt romney ad this week about president obama. >> barack obama says he may appoint a secretary of business. his solution to everything is to add another bureaucrat. why not have a president who actually understands business? under obama, millions of people can't find work. and more families on welfare and a record number of americans on food stamps. mitt romney understands business, knows how to create jobs, and get our economy moving. he's done it before, he can do it again. >> paul: james, good message? >> well, i think so. the second half of it was positive and the first half, the secretary of business idea, it's a number of the-- one of the number of signs suggesting that the obama campaign thinks it's losing where they're throwing out ideas late in the campaign as a kind of a disorganized panicked quality and as the ad says, another bureaucracy is not the answer. >> paul: don't we have a secretary of commerce that's supposed to be a secretary of business? >> and we don't even need that one so the idea t
looked at the crowd, and...we all jt lost our jobs. we don't have an income. mitt romney made over 100 million dollars by shutting down our plant and devastated our lives. turns out that when we built that stage it was like building my own coffin and it just made me sick. [ male announcer ] prrities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising. [ minto ] you know, those ads saying mitt romney would ban all abortions and contraception seemed a bit extreme. so i looked into it. turns out, romney doesn't oppose contraception at all. in fact, he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother's life. this issue's important to me but i'm more concerned about the debt
and a record number of americans on food stamps. mitt romney understands business, knows how to create jobs, and get our economy moving. he's done it before, he can do it again. >> paul: james, good message? >> well, i think so. the second half of it was positive and the first half, the secretary of business idea, it's a number of the-- one of the number of signs suggesting that the obama campaign thinks it's losing where they're throwing out ideas late in the campaign as a kind of a disorganized panicked quality and as the ad says, another bureaucracy is not the answer. >> paul: don't we have a secretary of commerce that's supposed to be a secretary of business? >> and we don't even need that one so the idea that we want to add another. who knows? a secretary of business under an obama administration, making sure that alternative energy companies getting more advantage over other types of firms? i mean, yikes. >> paul: my only problem with that ad i think it's a distraction, in the sense that romney ought to be focused directly at the camera, here is my plan and contrast with the president

raeters are? >> that is what the romney campaign says. it's responsible for 700,000 jobs if we raise those, we're going to lose 700,000 jobs. >> very hard to get down to those numbers. how is business going for this small group that is responsible for such job creators? >> okay, it is definitely better than a few years ago. they're a lot of new exciting things, with the jobs act is going to be available sometime next year. optimism is up, but there's a lot of uncertainty and people say my biggest problem is demand. i need customers through the door. for that to happen, the economy needs to get better. >> what about the expense side of the business. health care reform. businesses with less than 50 full time businesses are except from the requirements to offer health insurance or pay a penalty? >> exactly. but once you get to 50, 96% of businesses already offer health care, so the requirement they'll have to isn't going to change that much for most businesses. earlier in the show, basically, talk about your company, don't talk -- you need to talk about why you do it and that shows the emotio
points to his administration's auto rescue for saving jobs. and romney emphasizes the need for domestic energy production as an economic engine for the area. >> we've had a lot of positive economic news over the last couple of months. and so the question is, is it too close to the election to really make an impact on people's votes? or are people still kind of weighing the economic realities of the country and of the state. >> reporter: the city of lord's town is home to a sprawling general motors factory, the area's largest employer. once on the verge of collapse, it's become a national symbol of the federal bailout of the auto industry and a center piece of mr. obama's campaign. former president bill clinton who will visit ohio next week with the president pointed to the plant's success as this summer's democratic party conventions in charlotte. >> the auto industry restructuring worked. it saved-- it saved more than a million jobs, and not just at gm, chrysler and their dealerships, but in auto parts manufacturing all over the country. >> reporter: today the lords town plant churns o

weak to bring a quick up-tick in jobs. and on the stump in ames, iowa, today, mitt romney seized on the that aspect of the new report. >> today, we received the latest round of discouraging economic news. last quarter, our economy grew at just 2%. after the stimulus was passed, the white house promised it would be growing at 4.3%, over twice as fast. slow economic growth means slow job growth and declining take- home pay. that's what four years of president obama's policies has produced. americans are ready for change, for growth, for jobs, for more take home pay, and we're going to bring it to them. >> brown: after two days of intense campaigning, president obama was off the trail today. he did not directly address the new data in a radio interview, but pushed back on romney's criticism. >> the fact of the matter is that governor romney's economic policies are reverting back to the same policies that i inherited, that led us to the slowest job growth in 50 years, record deficits, and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. what governor romney's offering is a retur

you'll hear mitt romney saying is that the -- those jobs, the quality of those jobs is not what they were before they were lost. they tend to be more part-time, lower-paying jobs, fewer benefits, and that he can do better. the question is whether or not a presidential candidate can ultimately influence private sector hiring. when you see that number, 125,000 or whatever it is at 8:30, you'll notice a portion of that will be government higher, a small portion, 10,000 or 15,000 jobs. most hiring in this country is private sector hiring. mitt romney's argument is that the private sector won't hire under president obama because they're fearful of higher taxes. they're fearful of all those kinds of things. president obama makes the argument that demand, more people working, will create demand and that will create more hiring. so this thing going to be relevant for about ten minutes and after that it's going to devolve into spin for the rest of the weekend. >> which means it will be relevant in a completely different way all the way until sometime tuesday night for sure. ali velshi al
,000 or 15,000 jobs. most hiring in this country is private sector hiring. mitt romney's argument is that the private sector won't hire under president obama because they're fearful of higher taxes. they're fearful of all those kinds of things. president obama makes the argument that demand, more people working, will create demand and that will create more hiring. so this thing going to be relevant for about ten minutes and after that it's going to devolve into spin for the rest of the weekend. >> which means it will be relevant in a completely different way all the way until sometime tuesday night for sure. ali velshi also going to stick around with us all morning. we've been talking, of course, about jobs, jobs, jobs. as ali said the race there in ohio, virtual dead heat. across the nation, much of the nation as well, president obama, mitt romney, are going to fan out across the battleground states over the next four days. both candidates will spend lots of time in ohio, because as ali pointed out, it's a dead heat. president, three events there. he's going to be talking jobs, a
is this ad that the romney campaign just put out. >> complete lies. >> about jobs going to china. just to the point where chrysler is saying no! we're not doing -- you're actually slandering us here. >> stephanie: that's what i mean. is the maybe stream media going -- is the mainstream media -- blatant lies like that. chrysler had to say no. that's so blatant. he's in ohio and he says -- let's see. a news story about chrysler's plans to open a plant in china. he said the company's thinking of moving all production to china. he'll prevent such action by fighting for every job in america. that's not what the story said. in fact, it says they're planning to open a chinese factory where it will make a popular line, jeep for chinese consumers. chrysler isn't planning on shipping production away. it will add factories in china to keep up with the nation's growing demand for automobiles. >> romney is sending jobs over to china from illinois the day before the election. >> but the other thing is that he didn't just s
jeeps in china. romney will fight for every american job. >> i'm romney and i approve this message. >> the campaign goes romney is wrong, he's lying. look at the guy who bought chrysler and his quote. the ceo of chrysler says we are working to establish a global enterprise and announce the intent to return jeep production to china. that is the italian that bought chrysler for nothing. >> bob: romney let him off with bankruptcy. >> eric: no, he didn't. >> manager: you talk about the managed bankruptcy. >> kimberly: italian that wants to do business -- >> bob: they have built jeeps in china for year. >> kimberly: talk about the accuracy of the ad. >> bob: maybe they work together. >> kimberly: moving on. >> bob: the flat earth society people with republican colleagues won the public relations battle on global warming. against real science. now it's back and we find out that having the hurricane this late in the season with the catastrophic weather system for hottest ten years on record is back. i think we win the battle easily. >> dana: best way to win a p.r. battle is with facts. >>
. >> but michael, in closing here, you think that the romney camp has done a heck of a job keeping themselves in the campaign with all that money that they've had out there? come on, now. there's no question that the country now it was going to come down to the final hours of people making a decision, so much money, so much intensity, we're a divided country. i just think that when you look at ohio, what is dogging mitt romney right now is the way he has handled this automobile industry. >> oh, no question about that. i am totally on your page on that front. i thought that was a little ham handed and really put the campaign into an awkward position to try and clean it up. >> alex, is the automobile the waterloo for mitt romney? >> absolutely. 110%. every campaign comes book to the candidate. the fact that mitt romney did what he did, wrote that op ed and then ran for president and did not think he was going to have to do any triage on that is a sign of a very flawed candidate or someone who totally under estimates the american worker. >> ed? when you're calling him president elect romney on w
a good job -- chris christie was full praise for president obama last night. romney did the right thing. romney campaign agreed to not attack the president in the next couple of days, which is very smart politics, if you will, but it's the right thing to do. >> kimberly: he's a gentleman. >> bob: and they both called off the campaign events which is the right thing to do in the effected areas. so far, the politics, i say obviously it benefits to the president. but romney has inserted himself -- >> eric: can i interrupt? this is absolutely going to benefit mitt romney, because romney was on, he was getting the momentum. he had the gallup poll increasing in his favor and still is. what this did, what the storm did is put evening on hold. froze everything in place. he gets the bigger momentum. importantly, the female vote. the women vote was going, he closed that gap completely. now there is a freeze. bam become can't go -- obama can't go negative and romney can't go negative. if president obama starts showing up at these various places too often, people will say he is pandering. political
the first debate was hitting romney left and right with the zingers. >> well, governor romney is right, you are familiar with jobs being shipped overseas because you invested in companies that were shipping jobs overseas. >> jon: boom! >> you mentioned the navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. well, governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets. (cheers and applause). >> jon: bam! >> the biggest geopolitical threat facing america you said russia. not al qaeda, you said russia. and the 1980s are calling to ask for their foreign policy back. (laughter and applause). >> jon: well, that was a little hackie. i mean that was -- that was a it will roasty. i wouldn't (bleep) your foreign policy with margaret thatcher's (bleep), come on! hickory dickory dock, your geopolitical understanding can suck my -- (laughter) sorry. that's -- no, please don't because then i'll do it again some night. (laughter) so the president had a good night. must have felt pretty confident because he was letting his professor or y'all side shine through. especially when it came to one cou
the job situation. i like what romney wantso do, the code has a lot of deductions that shouldn'te there, we should just lower rates and get at them. and in fixing that, if you pay 25%, and then you get deduct the mortgage or don't get to deduct the mortgage and pay 20%. if you're net-net not getting taxed any more, i don't see how that's actually going to lead to more spending and i tell you a little dangerous in the short run, the housing market is still-- and to pull out major deductions the home mortgage deduction being one of them. he didn't say he was going to do that, if it didn't do that, but makes the budget work. >> brenda: i know, the tax code is like war and peace. overhauling it, will that help get jocks. >> like you've read that. >> not immediately, but look, we've got the most sophisticated tax code in the entire world, makes us uncompetitive and the u.s. falls on a competitive basis and a lot of reason is the tax code. what it's done, it's made small businesses at a big disadvantage to big business. because what happens is big crony businesses getting their loopholes and
in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> romney: i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> bill: how about a little fact checking on that ad, judd? >> yeah. it is really, i think probably the most dishonest ad we've seen this campaign cycle. at least at the presidential level. >> bill: which is saying something, isn't it? >> it is saying something. is it it starts off right at the beginning when mitt romney says i have a plan to help the auto industry. and as it turns out he has no plan. there's nothing on his web site and actually reporters have followed up and they've said could you send us a copy of the plan. and there is no plan. no one's gotten anything. so i guess it is just the idea that -- saying you have a plan is more important than actually having a plan. >> bill: also when he says i have a plan for 12 million new jobs and we haven't seen the plan yet either. on the auto industry, it is kind of late after g.m. and chrysler are already back, right? already back on their feet ma
roosevelt. mitt romney says he will do a better job if he is elected. the republican nominee is spending the last few days of the campaign making that case in the battleground states. romney is in wisconsin and ohio today trying to pick up the few remaining undecided voters. >> and we asked them and you to look beyond the speeches and the attacks and the ads, look to the record. >> reporter: the race is tied in nine swing states. the latest polls also show the race tightening in pennsylvania, a state once thought to be easily in the president's win column. the romney campaign is making a late push to take pennsylvania. the republicans are spending three million dollars on campaign ads there and romney will visit the state on sunday. now, let's look at the markets right now. you can see that the dow is down just by 100 points. stock gave up that early gain despite a decent jobs report. that job is being attributed to traders assessing the potential costs of superstorm sandy. back to the campaign, president obama's camp is calling the gop's effort in pennsylvania an act of desperation. but
in the way. the october jobs report will be released in three and a half hours. both the obama and romney campaign hope the numbers will help them in the race. it's too close to call right now. christine romans is going to have a look at it. christine? >> let's talk about what we are expecting in the final economic report before tuesday. in three and a half hours, we'll find out what happens for jobs and the unemployment rate. the expectation is the unemployment rate is 7.9%, picking up slightly with 125,000 jobs added in the month. the trend, though, is what is so important here, right? sometimes you get a little in the month. the trend is what's important. 7.8% was the unemployment rate when the president took office. last month, he's back to where he started. february, 2009, that's the stimulus. then the unemployment rate rise up to 10% in october, 2009 as the stimulus money was being deployed. stubbornly high unemployment. then drifting lower much of this year. we can look at job creation and you can see how jobs have been added now since the end of 2010 consistently, but not robustly
states, i think. host: let's listen to governor romney recently talking about jobs. [video clip] >> when we do those five things, this economy will. come will. we will create 12 million new jobs in four years. we will see rising take-home pay. if we will get america oppose the economy growing at 4% per year, more than double this year's rate. after all the false promises of recovery and all the waiting, we will finally see help for america's middle class. host: that was mitt romney in iowa on friday. let's hear from richard in milwaukee, wisconsin on the democratic line. caller: good morning, c-span, and good morning mr. glover. i have a question on the associated press. where do you get your polling from? at work we have 90 people and last week we took our own polling. that was in a secret ballot. everybody said that they never got calls in the last 30 days, calls from anybody. so we took our own secret ballot. obama comes out with 77 people. so that is my question. thank you. guest: well, thank you. by the way, i will be in milwaukee a couple weeks after the election. it's one of my fa
in two ways. one, the romney has got a job to do. mitt romney has nothing to do during this crisis. the president has stuff he can do. that's number one. and, second, if romney felt as if momentum was starting to take hold here and he had this opportunity to start talking about minnesota, all of that is gone for three days, at a minimum. >> something you may not have thought of, although you think of everything, i think this is going to zap some of the poison out of the race. >> i competely agree. i think the tone changes a little bit. however, biden did the youngstown event today. it was still pretty partisan and there were tough hits on romney but i do think from the two principals, the surrogates will be pretty tough but i think for mitt romney and from barack obama, for the last six days of the campaign, assuming it does start up on wednesday again, i bet it's a slightly different tone. >> i think mother nature might take over. thank you, chuck todd. great reporting and analysis, as always. coming up, we'll continue to track sandy as it bears down on the east coast now under an
that general motors and chrysler will send american jobs overseas to china. here's part of the romney ad. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> well, this is not the first time a romney ad has spread a falsehood. think of the ads that misled on romney's position on contraception, and the erroneous ad that said that president obama ended the work requirement for welfare. by the way, that ad is still running. but this time he messed with the wrong group, the auto industry himself. a general motor spokesman condemned the ad of romney, saying, "we've clearly entered some parallel universe during these last few days. no amount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will diminish our record of creating jobs in the united states and repatriating profits back to this country." and the ceo of chrysler sent an e-mail to all of its employees that said, "chrysler group's production plans for the jeep brand have become the focus of public debate. i feel obliged to unambigu
of other ambitious politicians is he really genuinely loves the job he has now. think of mitt romney when he was governor of massachusetts. he was a stepping stone. that's all he wanted out of that job. chris christie has wanted to be governor of new jersey his whole life. new jersey political culture is this very sort of quirky and insular thing. the governor is vetted with more constitutional authority there than anything else. i think he really -- there's something about the role any plays in new jersey politics now. he relishes who he is in that state, what he represents to that state. when something like this comes along, this is the ultimate test of gubernatorial leadership in new jersey. if you want to look for the more cynical interpretation, it's this, to survive in new jersey, to survive as a republican in a blue state, chris christie's strategy has been to seek out and publicize high-profile partnerships with members of the other party. cory booker, the mayor of newark, is the most prominent example of this. he's done it with a number of mayors in new jersey. he's done it with
recovery began three years ago, mitt romney said job creation is still not strong enough. >> today the businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new% jobs. this morning to learn companies hired more workers in october than any time in the last eight months. >> he said he would lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. we learned it is actually 7.9%, and that is 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> romney picking up a talking point the unemployment rate rose to 7.9%. a month ago to recall in a september jobs report the rate dropped unexpectedly from 8.1% to 7.8%, which was the rate the president obama had when he took office in january 2009. giving the president a talking point, given that one back. dennis: thank you very much, peter barnes. cheryl: our next guest says recovery is simply not enough anymore and the october jobs report is another reminder we are nowhere near economic expansion. the chairman joins us now. why are you so focus on the idea of expansion and not recovery? >> when you look a
romney has shown he is very good at sending jobs overseas. but i have news for the governor, a president's job is different. the president's job is to create jobs in america. bring jobs home to america. keep jobs from leaving america. that is the president job. at the president said in the second debate, he said mitt romney's plans are sketchy. i did not like to correct the president but in this case, i will. they are not sketchy, they are etch-a-sketchy. they are changing the whole deal. but you cannot erase libya already done, but you have already voted for -- erase what you have already done. what you said you would support had been president. but you have already voted for. extending tax cuts for the very wealthy. a $500 billion tax cuts while cutting essential programs. cutting essential programs. turning medicare from guaranteed plan into a voucher program. which will cost seniors thousands of dollars over time. not in 19 million people off the program. -- knocking 19 million people off the problem. -- off medicare. promising another $250,000 for the top 1% which require raising ta
are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >>> i'm mitt romney and i approved this message. >> mitt romney did actually say he'd let detroit go bankrupt and he opposed the bailout and said if we did it it you could kiss the automotive industry good-bye and that didn't really work out. when they endorsed him, they said in spite of him screwing up so badly. the point where they say barack obama sold gm to italians who are going to build jooirps in china. this appears to be a spin on this ad from ohio last week. >> i saw a store today, one of the great manufacturers in this state, jeep. now owned by the italians, thinking of moving all production to china. i will fight for every good job in america and i'm going to fight to make sure trade is fair and if it's fair america will win. >> that line about jeep moving american jobs to china? moving all production to china? that is not true. chrysler is not moving its production to china. that is not at all true. that is not true. that is a lie. chrysler itself had to come out publicly and say, what mitt romney
to elect mitt romney and paul ryan to save jobs in virginia? \[applause] are you ready to get the greatest country on earth out of debt and back to work by electing mitt romney? \[applause] i thought so. well you look all dried out and recovered from the store and god blessed us by giving us a glancing blow. what great work done by our first responders and government officials around the state. we are blessed to have done so well here in virginia. \[applause] you know a month ago president obama came to virginia and said if you don't win virginia, i won't be president of the united states. will you help him keep that promise? \[applause] we love having mitt romney here. but we like having president obama and joe biden here because they say the darnedest things in virginia, don't they? >> like bind saying it's great to be here in north carolina. and president obama saying he had a business but somebody else built that. does that sound like somebody who understands free enterprise and the american dream? fortunately, we have a candidate who does. i'm glad to have followed george allen. he wa
boost hiring. romney will be much more than that to keep his jobs promise. how about housing. prices in some areas are rising, foreclosures slowing, but this is america and what will really get the economy going again is you. consumer spending rising, consumer confidence the best in four years. there's no doubt president obama inherited an economy in crisis, and his supporters will tell you he's turned things around. >> we have made real progress. >> his final argument, he deserves another four years to finish the recovery. mitt romney says his business experience and his big ideas are what america needs. you've heard their closing arguments. now it's decision time. and that makes you the jury, and the jury in ohio may determine the fate of the nation for the next four years. in ohio that's where we find my good friend ali velshi, cnn's chief business correspondent and john avlon is there with him as well. you have to go back to 1960 until you find the last time the winner of ohio did not end up in the white house. unemployment rate in ohio 7%, guys, below the national average. it wa
in a very tight race. i can't even understand how he offshore is his money let alone jobs. mitt romney is on the move when voters in swing states in the close presidential race tonight in the key battleground state of ohio for the second time in 90 days the government announced the economy grew by 2 percent in the third quarter exceeding expectations. after the stimulus was passed to the white house promised that the economy would be growing at 4.3% over twice as fast. today he dismissed romney's economic failed economic policies of the past. the chicago tribune endorsed the president for the second time, the paper says that he is credited for effectively prosecuted the war on terror. i think the youth has a lot of power and we have the power to make a difference. they are really open to both sides. the kids will enjoy the opportunity banks to school teachers who picked them to participate in the program. the top democrat in the u.s. senate has been released from the hospital after being involved in a car accident he was riding in a vehicle near las vegas when his motorcade crashed in
back every job lost under his watch. that's quite a feat, but romney says not good enough. >> we're going to create 12 million new jobs and more take-home pay. >> reporter: >> how is that possible, major economic growth. the economy grew at a 2% annual rate during the third quarter, better but not nearly enough to significantly boost hiring. romney will be much more than that to keep his jobs promise. how about housing. prices in some areas are rising, foreclosures slowing, but this is america and what will really get the economy going again is you. consumer spending rising, consumer confidence the best in four years. there's no doubt president obama inherited an economy in crisis, and his supporters will tell you he's turned things around. >> we have made real progress. >> his final argument, he deserves another four years to finish the recovery. mitt romney says his business experience and his big ideas are what america needs. you've heard their closing arguments. now it's decision time. and that makes you the jury, and the jury in ohio may determine the fate of the nation for
